Which boils down to... ??? Does fitted = sharp? At the end of the day, all I want to do is look good.

I don't think the two should be equated. You can have a well-fitted shirt in an inferior fabric that still looks like a cheap shirt. If you go custom, my advice is, don't skimp on fabric selection. You'll save money, but it's penny-wise and pound-foolish.

Let me echo my original comment:

If you feel it looks good and it works for you, then go for it. IMO, fitted = sharp, yes. Nothing looks better than clothing made to fit your body.

I just received my CEGO shirts. I'll post pics soon. I have used Jantzen previously also. For a slim shirt, I think it is worth going custom. After seeing the final product, I expect I'll continue working with Carl. I suspect details can be recreated by a custom shirtmaker while giving a much better fit.

"Does fitted = sharp?"

huh?


Cheers,

Well said.

Without any reservation. Jantzen. By far the best quality for the price. Actually, if you were to buy this type of shirt in the US, it would be priced at about 120 to 140 dollars

Some makers I've considered
- Pink
- Charles Tyrwhitt
- Brooks Bros.
- Valentino (via discount store)
- YSL (via discount store)
- Hugo Boss
- Bergdorf Goodman house label
- Dunhill

Is it worth going up to $200 a shirt? Thoughts and comments welcome.

One thought is to wait until Harvie & Hudson show up in New York and get some bespoke shirts. Thoughts on cost and like?

I got a T&A shirt for £75, which used to equate to around $100 before your economy tanked

Anyone happen to have a picture of a CEGO shirt?

I've found that Express shirts fit the best on me. They are relatively cheap and they are always having sales.

I never find their fabrics much suitable for wearing with a suit, and at full price they definitely aren't worth it. That said, I own a few as casual shirts but nothing more. They really could do with having sizes by neck and sleeve length.
